Trinidad Drilling Ltd. Supports the Oil Respect Campaign

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - April 5, 2016) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.

Trinidad Drilling Ltd. (TSX:TDG) (Trinidad) supports the Oil Respect Campaign.

"Nothing could be more important for our Company than pushing for a fact-based discussion about oil and gas development," declared Lyle Whitmarsh, Trinidad's Chief Executive Officer. "We have had to let go experienced, valued employees as a result of very weak industry conditions. We're now asking industry participants, our employees, past and present, and the general public to support Oil Respect in its quest to gain recognition of the importance of the industry, and to get pipelines built so that we can compete on a level playing field against foreign oil."

Oil Respect is about standing up for hardworking oil families and businesses who are struggling. It's about respecting the facts, workers and the contributions this industry provides to Canadians.

Oil Respect will fight against the misinformation spread by foreign celebrities, radical environmentalists and grandstanding politicians at a time when tens of thousands of people are without work and without hope for an immediate recovery. It will demand action by federal and provincial governments on pipelines, the safest and most effective way to transport oil and gas products. For more information on the campaign, go to the website at: www.oilrespect.ca.

Oil Respect is a national campaign to allow regular Canadians to share their personal stories and demand respect for their industry.
